According to media reports, three senior Congress leaders have advocated Priyanka’s name for top party post. The move aims at overhauling Congress which faced humiliating defeat in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls.

Demand for bringing Priyanka in party organization has grown up after LS poll debacle. According to a party insider, Priyanka will be inducted into Congress after assembly elections in several states slated in October-November this year.

While there is no clarity on the role she will play in the party, the report quoted Congress leaders as saying that she may be made AICC general secretary (organisation), a post currently held by Janardhan Dwivedi.

The other option being talked about is her appointment as Congress chief in crucial Uttar Pradesh. The party is of view that its revival will begin in real terms only after it does well in UP and Bihar.

The sources assert that Priyanka’s entry into party organisation won’t undermine his brother and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s role in the party.
